Goodbye contouring, hello strobing. Now, some of you may asking, “what is strobing?” Strobing is the new beauty trend that just focuses on highlighting your face. While contouring focuses on chiseling the face, strobing gives you that dewy, youthful glow.
Strobing is the perfect new beauty trend to achieve that summer glow. To get that perfect glow, you want to start off with hydrated skin and with an illuminated base like Tatcha’s Luminous Dewy Skin Mist or MAC Strobe Cream. Then with a cream or powder highlight, you want to illuminate the ares that natural light touches by applying your highlighter to your cheekbones, forehead, bridge of your nose, brow bone, the corner of your eyes, and cupid’s bow.
Now that you know how to achieve luminous skin, here are the best highlighters to achieve the strobing effect.
First, I want to apologize for taking so long to post something new on the blog, some of you may know that I also run a tech startup and these past few weeks have been really hectic. On a brighter note, I am so excited to be sharing my newest DIY project with you all. It’s been a long time coming and I can’t wait for you guys to see what I came up with.
A few weeks back, I created a gold spray painted vase for my best friend’s birthday, I posted the photo on Instagram and some of you were interested in a tutorial. I thought, how cool would this design look on a smaller glass cylinder that I can use as a makeup brush holder?
With just a few steps, you can create a glam makeup brush holder (or vase), it’s the perfect addition to your vanity or as a gift.
A few weeks ago, I stepped into my local Sephora looking for a new primer. I find gel type primers very drying on my face and I was looking for a more moisturizing primer. I came across the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water, thanks to one of the sales associates.
At first I wasn’t sold on it as it was primer water, so I wasn’t sure how my makeup would last wearing it but I decided to give it a whirl. Plus, as you may already know, I am a sucker for trying out new makeup products.
I went for the smaller bottle as it wasn’t a product that they could give me a sample of since it was a spray bottle and this way if I didn’t love it, I wouldn’t have spent a lot of money.
When I first sprayed it on my face, the primer made my skin feel revitalized right away, it felt so refreshing. The primer reawakens the skin and restores moisture into the skin which is very important. It’s also packed with electrolytes and free of alcohol, oil and silicone (always a plus). My favourite way to use the primer is by spritzing it on my face in the middle of the day to reawaken my look.
How to use the primer: Hold the bottle 8″-10″ away from your face and mist evenly. I first do a T across my face then a X.
This multi-purpose primer doesn’t only moisturize and lock down makeup, here are 4 ways to use the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water.
These past few months I have been obsessed with chalkboard decor and crafts. Chalk possibilities are endless and you can turn something simple like a wine bottle into something so pretty and chic.
I got inspired by this chalkboard wine bottle when I visited Michaels and they had their Make Market items on display.
This wine bottle vase is perfect for table accents, a rustic centrepiece and even wedding decor. You can even making one as a housewarming gift.
To make your own vase, just follow my steps!
